"The Wall Street Journal" is a leading financial and business news organization based in New York City. It publishes in print worldwide and also on its website, WSJ.com. You can send a letter to the editor of "The Wall Street Journal" in two ways -- by postal mail or email. "The Wall Street Journal" asks that letter writers include their city and state, in case of publication.

Write your letter. Edit it for grammar, punctuation and coherence. Writing in a clear, concise manner will increase your chances of being published. While most news publications prefer to print letters regarding current issues or in response to recent articles, you can write your letter to the editor on the topic of your choice.

Choose a method for sending your letter. "The Wall Street Journal" accepts letters intended for publication by email and by post. While email is faster, "The Wall Street Journal" does not state a preference for either method.

Send your letter. If sending by email, send it to wsj.ltrs@wsj.com. Enter "Letter to the Editor" as the subject of the email. Be sure to include your name, city and state at the close of the letter. If sending by post, send the letter to: The Editor, The Wall Street Journal, 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036.

Tip

Do not be discouraged if your letter is not printed in subsequent issues of "The Wall Street Journal." A publication of its size and prominence receives thousands of letters a week.
